We have been keeping a close eye on the news and events surrounding the tragic attacks that took place in Paris yesterday.

We have been in touch with our students studying abroad in Paris, and are pleased to report that they are safe and unharmed. We also have reached out to our other students in Europe and are continuing to receive reports from them that they are safe as well. They are in touch with us, their programs, their families and friends. We continue to monitor the situation and provide them with not only instructions and assistance during this difficult time, but with the reassurance that the Wofford family is here for them and is keeping them in our thoughts and prayers.

We also ask that you keep the people of Paris and France – especially those lost and injured and their families and friends – in your thoughts and prayers.

We will observe a moment of silence at today’s football game for those impacted by this tragedy.
